This power point presentation highlights advice and thoughts on the craft of writing from twelve famous authors. This is a great tool to use at once as a springboard for discussion about the often "agonizing" craft of writing, or can be used over the course several weeks, introducing and discussing one quote at a time.
The purpose of this power point is to simply demonstrate that even professional writers must work hard at writing and that is an evolutionary process. The common core standards stress the importance of the writing process from start to finish (brainstorming to final copy). Why not offer our students some words of wisdom from some of the best?
*Each quote is followed by a picture of he author and an image of one of their books.
